Precedence to Miss Remainder of Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival


Precedence has been ruled out of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival

Following the announcement earlier in the week that Australian Cup winner Shocking had been ruled out of the remainder of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, Bart Cummings has today advised Racing NSW Stewards that his 2011 Melbourne Cup hopeful Precedence is also being sent for a spell and would not see out the season.

Five-year-old Zabeel gelding Precedence had three runs this preparation.

First-up he finished a distant 14th to the now-retired Typhoon Tracy in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 12.

Second-up Precedence showed more promise running second behind Heart Of Dreams in the Group 2 St George Stakes (1800m) on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

At his latest start Precedence finished a disappointing fifth behind previous Melbourne Cup winner Shocking in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington on March 12, forcing the Cummings’ stable to abandon plans with Precedence for the rest of the autumn.

Precedence, who finished eighth in the 2010 Melbourne Cup and who will also likely be aimed at the 2011 edition of the world’s richest handicap on November 1, will now be sent to the paddock to freshen up.

Cummings was originally targeting the $2.25 million Group 1 The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill on April 2, Golden Slipper Day, with Precedence.

Leading online bookmaker Luxbet had Precedence as a $14 chance in their futures The BMW betting odds.

Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday is the $2.90 favourite in The BMW odds at Luxbet followed by the Gai Waterhouse-trained Descarado paying $7.

Fellow Zabeel gelding Maluckyday resumed with a first-up fourth behind Danleigh in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Warwick Farm on March 5.

Maluckyday will run second-up this Saturday in the $400,000 Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill.

Luxbet have Maluckyday as the $1.75 odds-on favourite to win the 2011 Ranvet Stakes while Descarado is the $3.90 second elect.
